Watford vs Tottenham Prediction & Betting tips
In the previous one, the “Spurs” start off slightly as favorites due to the collective potential that they possess, which is maintained in any field. For this reason and even when the local team is uncomfortable to overcome in their stadium, we believe that the bet “Tottenham will win any half” is interesting to bet. It paints to be a fought and intense duel from the initial whistle, but favorable to the visit for its greater individual hierarchy. Faced with this reality, we trust that the Pochettino boys can win like this, play well or badly.
The team played against Crystal Palace at home last weekend (triumph 2-1 after equaling 0-0 in the first half). These days, he has 9 points in the table, reaching to win the 3 matches he played. At the moment leads the Premier along with Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham. In matter of goals, he has scored 7 and has given 2 on his fence, standing out for being a compact and direct at the time of attack. Its objective is to continue accumulating positive results that allow it to make a good mattress of points for what is coming. Remember that your main struggle is to save yourself from direct descent and achieve permanence for one more season.
This will be the third game that Watford will play at home, after defeating Brighton 2-0 on the opening date and crashing into Crystal Palace as mentioned in the previous paragraph. For this match, coach Javi Gracia is expected to take his precautions, as he will run into one of the best teams in the competition. Therefore, we should not be surprised if you keep the 4-4-2 system that you have used regularly. Thanks to this tactical drawing, the team attacks and defends well, standing out for keeping an order between lines more than correct. Two players that will be important in the action of the “bees” will be the Argentine Roberto Pereyra and the scorer Deeney.
The “Spurs” come from playing against Manchester United at Old Trafford (triumph 0-3 after equaling 0-0 the first half). These days, they have 9 points in the general table, after winning their first 3 matches consecutively. The team is showing a more than positive performance, highlighting the hand of coach Pochettino. He has scored 8 goals in total, confirming his proposal and vertical uptight facing the arch.
As a visitor, Tottenham already played a game for this Premier and the result was positive for their interests (triumph 1-2 against Newcastle). For this exit it is expected that the Pochettino technician risk, since the “Spurs” will play against a lower level opponent. The logic indicates that the DT repeats the 4-2-3-1 system, which allows his boys to be balanced between lines and effective in attack. Of course, should appear Delle Alli, Eriksen and the striker Kane. Of course, other important elements in the rotation are the side Trippier, the flyers of Dier and Sissoko and the Brazilian midfielder Lucas Moura (recovered by the Argentine coach after passing through PSG).
In the last 6 and a half years, Watford and Tottenham have met 4 times on Vicarage Road. These are the results of those duels: Victory 0-1 of Tottenham in January 2012 for the FA Cup, triumph 1-2 of Tottenham in December 2015, victory 1-4 of Tottenham in January 2017 and 1-1 draw in December 2017. Apparently, every time both teams clash there are always goals in between. It is not ruled out that the pattern extends once more, being possible that Tottenham wins by its greater individual hierarchy.
